What impressed me most was the completeness of this first issue. It is as though you had been publishing it for years.

Allow me to congratulate you.

It should be a great success and certainly will be. Its beautiful and well-chosen illustrations create intense interest and overflow with pictorial information which delight especially those who know and enjoy sports. Its articles on the chosen subjects impart to those interested in sports a great deal of information. Typographically your initial issue is excellent.

I have read and enjoyed the first issue. From the combined viewpoint of a fan and onetime sports editor, I think it is a first-rate job and strictly off and running on the right track.

CANCELLATIONS AND DISAPPOINTMENTS
I have received my first copy of Sports Illustrated and wish to cancel my subscription.
I just "read" the first issue of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED.
Make-up unimaginative—writing the same! Okay—the pictures of the Marciano fight were good—but that doesn't make a magazine.
You seem to be departmentalized and organized all the sweat, smell, fun and life out of sports.
Your first issue disappointed our son. He is an "outboard" enthusiast.
